Faith can move mountains, but only if you lay down the shovel and stop trying to do it yourself.
- Amy Torkelson
We are constantly immersed in stories—from
television news to films, novels and
TV programs. The inspiring real-life
stories we tell here are stories of faith,
hope and love, stories of challenges
overcome as well as small unexpected
moments of grace.
More importantly, our inspiring true stories
are about and by people like you.
People who have discovered how to
live their lives with more hope and joy
and, through their stories and experiences,
have helped others to do the same.
